Kody Brown and Janelle Still

Many fans of the television series “Sister Wives” were shocked when they saw Christine Brown announce her split from Kody Brown during season 16 in November 2021. The fans had thought that she would not have been the first of the polygamist’s four wives to leave as the viewers had predicted that it would be the first wife Meri Brown instead of Christine.

Kody and Meri had struggled for years in their marriage. As a result, fans of the TLC series have sp[eculated that another of Kody’s wives could potentially be preparing to leave Kody. Furthermore, Kody found himself at odds with both his third wife Christine and second wife Janelle Brown in season 16 as they clashed over guidelines for the coronavirus pandemic.

If you are curious to know whether Janelle and Kody are still together or not in the present then you are in the right place as we will tell you everything you need to know about their current relationship in this article. Firstly, let’s get to know more about Janelle Brown.

Who is Janelle Brown?

Janelle Brown became part of the Brown family after she tied the know with Kody in a spiritual wedding on 20th January 1993. However, she was not Kody’s first wife as he was already married to Meri Brown for more than two years. Thus, she became Kody’s second wife and their relationship remained intact when he decided to marry Christine a year later and married his fourth wife Robyn in late 2010.

Her full name is Janelle S. Brown (née Schriever) and she was born on 6th May 1969 in a long line of LDS Mormons and was raised in this belief system.  Before marrying Kody, she was married to Adam Barber. She had tied the knot with Adam in Salt Lake City, Utah, in December of 1988. However, the two decided to get a divorce and their divorce was finalized in 1990 just 2 years after their marriage.

As mentioned earlier, she got married to Kody in 1993 and together they have six children. They have welcomed four sons, Logan Taylor, Hunter Elias, Robert Garrison, and Gabriel. Similarly, they have welcomed two daughters whose names are Madison Rose and Savanah.

Not only is Janelle a mother of six children but she is also the grandmother of two. That’s because her daughter Madison married Caleb Brush and they have welcomed a son, Axel James Brush, and one daughter,  Evangelynn Kodi Brush.

Janelle thought of ending her marriage

Despite being together with her husband Kody since 1993, she revealed that she thought of ending her marriage to Kody in season 16 of the series. The series revealed the struggles that the family faced during the pandemic. The problems in their relationship were amplified by the lack of consensus on safety procedures.

Kody’s first and fourth wives, namely Meri and Robyn, adhere to his set of rules which entailed sanitizing groceries and mail before carrying them into the house, extreme social distancing, and changing the clothes after going out or visiting public areas. However, his second and third wives, namely Janelle and Christine, decided to spend more time with their adult kids instead of going to spend time with Kody.

It was at this moment when the reality star revealed that she harbored about leaving her husband. She said, “I’ve had to really think. My children are almost grown, and there’s not a huge necessity anymore to stay. It was a wonderful way to raise children. With Kody and I right now, our relationship is pretty strained. And you know, it’s easy to walk away.”

However, she revealed in season 16 that she is committed to staying with their family even though she clearly has issues regarding her relationship with Kody. Now you might have curious to know about their current relationship status so let’s discuss that topic under the next subheading.

Their current relationship status

It seems that Kody and Janelle are still together because there is not any news that indicates that they have ended their relationship. So, it is completely safe to assume that they are still married.

However, Kody has not appeared together with his wife in her Instagram pictures for a long time as many fans have noted. But she is still close to Christine.

Some people have made some predictions and speculation about their relationship. Such as one person stated, “It seems like she’s spending a lot of time with Christine lately, so maybe?”

While some speculate that something might have happened when filming was complete. Whereas one person made a prediction as he stated, “Janelle will never officially leave. Kody will visit her on occasion as a friend, but like many older wives in polygamy, they’re turned out to pasture to live their life alone with their children and grandchildren to give them love.”
